In 2003, Vietnam's exports to US stood at $2.48 billion, which is over 131 percent rise in the number recorded last year; therefore the net amount rose by 161 percent.

European Union (EU) is Vietnam's second largest garment export market, after US, while Japan is the third biggest apparel market with no quota imposition. More so, US values the quality of apparels produced by Vietnam and ranks the same higher than other clothing producing nations like India, Pakistan and China.

As per Vietnamese Textile and Garment Corporation, it is time for Vietnamese apparel industry, to upgrade equipments to manufacture garments, thereby meeting US, Japan, Europe and other high-end fashion market's demands. For the same Vietnamese apparel industry will spend around $2.3 billion to improve their sewing techniques.

Vietnam's flourishing clothing industry has already lured many foreign sewing businesses, so much so that, they have their eyes set on the Vietnamese market and are looking for more chances for entering in to new businesses.
